Liver Transplant for Ricky

Many of you know Ricky personally and/or have had the pleasure of working with him. Ricky is part of a specialized team that requires 100% travel. He is always there for his coworkers and will go the extra mile to assist wherever he is needed.  Ricky has a genuine good heart, is single and has a 92 year old mother.

Ricky was diagnosed with liver cancer in March of 2015.  He went through surgery to remove a tumor in May of 2015.  Unfortunately the cancer returned in October of the same year.  Chemo has been really tough and leaves him weak and sick.  Ricky was put on the liver transplant list and has finally made it to the top spot!

Between all the doctors visits and treatment leading up to this transplant, Ricky is in need of funds to help pay for this procedure and the cost of aftercare.  Being at the top of the list means that it will be short notice for Ricky.  He will have to drop everything for this procedure, which will take place in San Diego.  Time is of the essence and your donations will help ease the burden of this expensive medical procedure.
